Y'know, I am so wishing that the CAA had a fainting emoticon right now, like on DA. I was completely and utterly stunned when I logged on today and found my entry smack dab in the middle of the main CAA page. Actually, I'm still trying to get my jaw off the ground
I'm glad and kinda amazed everyone liked my entry so much, thank you all so very much! Wow...
Okay, on to the belated ramblings about my fellow entrants, I really need to keep more up to date next month so I'm not bombarding the art thread with one huge entry. Well, I did comment on ILoveArt's (yay she's joined the coloring buddies!!!) so I guess I'll start from there...
Firstly, I really love the color scheme and solid color blocking in Vernhal's, though I'm probably a little biased because silver and blue are my favorite colors. The lens flares are extremely cool, and I love how polished and clean the image looks.
Eso is amazing as always, I've decided I want to be just like her when I'm all growed up
Seriously though, the detail in the background is incredible and I can't draw planes and technicallish stuff for the life of me, so I'm even more in awe. I really admire how the coloring seems so realistic, and all the different parts of the image are so cohesive. And the narrative element is very strong, it definitely inspired me to go totally overboard on my own entry.
I really, really, really liked Photosoph's take on the armor. The glowing hand is so sweet and the lighting and shading are excellent. And I love the tiger motif, with the claws and colors and striped background. So cool ^_^
And I wish my rushed stuff looked as good as Mave's. The shading and colors on the armor look really good and I like the effects around his hand. I especially like the background, with all the colors and textures and abstract shapes, it's very eyecatching.
CA's blue swirling flamey aqua vortex of doom is so incredibly cool!!!! I just keep staring at it and going 'ooooo..' The soft shading is working so nicely too and the hand is amazingly blinding, I love it
And here's to sincerely hoping that the talented Shao and the frequently frighteningly creative Piloswine will be able to enter next month. And thanks to Olorc for guiding this contest month to month, I think your doing a great job and it's growth is seeming quite natural. Though I'm still kinda stunned by the front page bit, in a giddy way ^_^
